What happens to your legacy when you pass away?….

Social media reach

…. have you ever asked yourself this question?… Well I have…

According to the E-marketer report in 2013, the number of people around the world that use social networks will increase from 1.47 billion in 2012 to 1.73 billion in 2013 and by 2017, the global social audience will be 2.55 billion.

One in four people belong to at least one social networking site. Facebook, google+, LinkedIn, twitter, flikr, Instagram, Myspace, care2 etc…

Which do you belong to? More importantly have you thought about what happens to all these accounts and your personal information when the inevitable happens?

The internet service providers are known to delete and destroy the accounts and the information it has on individuals once they pass away or are inactive for a couple of years.

A lot of personal information is stored electronically via the exchange from all these social sites and even the exchange of emails, so why not store this information collectively and securely.

With planneddeparture all this information will be stored in your e-vault. Only you and your beneficiaries you have enlisted with have the necessary information saved.

Living and working in this digital era, our social media accounts – from Facebook, Twitter, Flickr to the likes of Pinterest – are increasing not only in number but also in volume. Additionally, many of us have domain names registered and libraries of movies, digital music and e-Books that can be of significant value. And let's not forget about Bitcoin and other virtual currencies! For the majority of us, these accounts and digital assets are likely to outlive us. And when we die, it is left up to family members and estate executors to sift through them all. Furthermore, even though they may have all the required passwords necessary for these accounts, many heirs will discover that they have no clear authority to access, or even to manage, the online accounts of their deceased loved ones. With the value of individuals' digital assets globally measured in the hundreds of billions of dollars, planning for the protection of our digital assets has moved to centre stage. It is essential that our online and social media accounts are included as part of the estate planning process. Failure to do so may not only deprive those we leave behind of fond memories and (possibly) a little nest egg, it could also leave us vulnerable to postmortem identity theft if fraudsters get to use our personal details to apply for credit facilities whilst our accounts remain unguarded. Planned Departure resolves these issues. We provide you with the ability not only to protect your digital assets, but also to clearly indicate who can access your online accounts and who should benefit from them. Create piece of mind today by registering with us in one quick and easy process.
